Hannah Perry visited the Highline studios in December. Hannah started the visit by showing work from two recent shows, including her latest film and a performance, exhibited in Berlin. Hannah’s presentation illuminated the material processes and ideas behind her work. She discussed how her screen prints develop from her films; the transition between analogue and digital film editing, as well as practical considerations when planning work for larger shows. The discussion then developed around themes in Hannah’s work that resonated with the groups own practices and research. The conversation covered a range of topics, including the use of mirroring, hypnosis, and sound in Hannah’s work; psychological states and hysteria; diaristic forms; intimacy, solidarity, and friendship.
